Bo Graham has resigned his job as Arizona State running backs coach. The move comes just two weeks before the Sun Devils' season opener against Texas A&M.

An AP report cites "personal reasons" behind Graham's decision to step down from the post he's held since 2012.

Graham is the son of Arizona St. head coach Todd Graham. He had served as RB coach at Arizona St. for the past two seasons, and had served as the program's on-campus recruiting coordinator in 2012.

Arizona St. is scheduled to face Texas A&M in a neutral-site game at NRG Stadium in Houston Tx. on Sept. 5.

UPDATE 7:35 P.M.: Graham will be replaced by Josh Martin, who was most recently graduate assistant with the program.

UPDATE 7:39 P.M.: ESPN's Brent McMurphym, citing sources, is reporting via Twitter that Graham's resignation is "not for any NCAA-related issues."
